When God gives a ministry a vision, He provides. That is what happened for Clear Vision Ministries recently. They were on a God-led mission to fill 10 boxes with food for a Thanksgiving food drive for the families they currently minister to. God has already blessed the ministry with a small food pantry and they’ve been serving approximately 10 families since it began in late spring.
When the ministry shared God’s vision for the food drive on their Facebook page (Clear Vision 20/20 Ministries) as well as several individual pages, help soon arrived. Rochelle Avalos with Clear Vision Ministries was contacted by a few friends whose daughters are members of a local Girl Scout Troop. That group was participating in a canned food drive of their own and wanted to donate their supplies for the Thanksgiving boxes. There are 13 to 15 girls in the troop and each girl, along with their families, wanted to fill a box!
Avalos said, “Our ministry was only asking for around 10 boxes to be filled. What started off as a need for 10 boxes quickly turned into God’s double portion! He supplied more than enough. Our ministry is extremely grateful for our community, and for Girl Scout Troop No. 20616.”
Clear Vision Ministries is in Blount County, but not located in one place. This ministry gathers weekly in different locations throughout the community and recently celebrated their one-year anniversary. Avalos said, “God has called us to serve our community as His hands and feet.
“Most Sundays you can find us at Palisades Park. Wherever it is that God leads us, we try to be obedient and follow. We also have a women’s group that meets on Fridays at Rock Hill Coffee Co. in Oneonta.”
Check out their Facebook page for more details. Also, some other ministries that God has led them to include community clean-up and bereavement, marriage, and family counseling. Sunday, Dec. 20, at 6 p.m., Clear Vision will gather at Palisades Park for their second annual Candlelight Christmas service.
